Stop hiring VPs with big heads and egos - hire engineers to build, deliver, and support products.

Menlo Park, CA

I worked at Kana

ProsWork flexibility, telecommuting, reasonable benefits package

ConsShaky company, may go under, constant changing of direction

Advice to Senior ManagementStop with the grandiose BHAG and get back to basics - deliver quality features quickly that meet market needs. When you're stronger and not living hand-to-mouth you can pick your head up and look for new mountains to climb.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
